2017 Hoosiers

Recommended Posts

I was not able to see it. Kind of disappointed that it was on a Thursday night. I am watching the pres conference with Jon Gruden, who was there for the game, and have to admit seeing him on that podium in IU gear is something to see. He has a lot of great things to say about the coaches and the where the program is right now.

Liked what I saw from the hoosiers. Watched it live and again last night on DVR. Thought both QBs had some nice throws (Ramsey to TE Ian Thomas for a TD, Lagow to Simmie Cobbs Jr. in the Honey Hole vs Cov. 2, those were my favorites).

Lagow had the pick against Rashard Fant. Looked like a miscommunication on the route by someone followed by a bad throw, just a horrendous offensive play. Happens. 

Really believe Fant is going to get the best of Qs all year, guy is special is coverage, as long as he stays healthy. Saw were he got injured later in the game during a violent collision with Brookins (Terre Haute North). Haven't really been able to catch the extent of his injury. 

TEAM Defensive potential is really exciting, lots of experience and production back. Offensively, I'm excited to see how things pan out.

Really like the energy and message Tom Allen brought. Talked a ton about compete and finish (the finish part being an issue last year). Competed for steak or hotdog dinner, split up the 1s, 2s, 3s etc. evenly., etc. All great things. 

Glad to see them treat it as a game and get into as many situations as the could, even got an overtime period. That's some great situational football for April.

A big question is who gonna kick? Oaks (Greenwood) looks like his confidence is sunk. 

Overall, excited about this TEAMs potential, could be a really exciting year in Bloomington. 

Cool to see Coach Gruden there and hear his stories about Btown and comments on the program. Pumped about the South end zone project, going to make the game day atmostsphere pretty cool. 

Go Hoosiers!

Anybody watch the Spring game?  

Thought Peyton Ramsey did a great job.

Tough kid, from a powerhouse program in Cincy Elder could play a role similar to what Zander had last year then be handed the reins next year that gives 3 years as a starter and security at a very important position that IU can continue to recruit the athletes to put around him. I think this kid could have a bright future for the Hoosiers.

The Dude abides.  Time will tell though.

Hoosier lose highly rated hometown talent:  http://www.indystar.com/story/sports/college/indiana/2017/06/12/bloomington-south-running-back-decommits-iu/389191001/

Quote

Two months after committing to Indiana, Bloomington South running back Kristian Pechac announced Monday he would be reopening his recruitment. 

Rated as a 4-star recruit by Scout, Pechac took to Twitter to announce his decommitment. 

"After a lot of consideration I have made the decision to decommit from Indiana University and reopen my recruitment process," Pechac posted via Twitter. "Thank you to Coach Allen and the rest of the IU staff for the opportunity to be a Hoosier."

Pechac is the son of IU football director of player development Mike Pechac. He ran for 2,030 yards and 28 touchdowns in his junior year at Bloomington South and was the highest rated player in IU's 2017 class.

His was the first offer IU coach Tom Allen made when promoted to head coach in December, and Pechac verbally committed April 8.

“I think it’s a great place," he said to the Herald-Times when he committed. "I’ve loved it for the last two years, so I don’t see my mind changing over the next four years. I look forward to all four of them.”

IU is now down to three commits in the 2017 class.

Wow, to lose a recruit who just happens to also be the son of an football program employee.    

Harsh.

What's harsh about it? 

You don't think it is jarring to the program to lose a commitment from a recruit, a recruit who just happens to go to a local high school and whose parent works for the program?

No.  Not at all.  Early commits come and go.  It happens a lot.  The Dude will say that the Dude thought he was a solid commit, though.  Because of factors you mentioned.  Something had to have happened for him to decommit.  Regardless, IUFB probably isn't 'jarred' and will continue business as usual on recruiting student-athletes.  

Best of luck to him during the recruitment process.  He's very fortunate to have the opportunity to do so.  The Dude hopes he even might reconsider and continue to play 812FB!

Tough task for the new head coach:  first game of the year against Ohio State.  Recently these games have been close between these 2 teams.  However, I have a feeling it won't be this year.  I think the defense will play better than the offense but don't think they'll be able to keep up on the scoreboard with the Buckeyes.

We can say "harsh" if he commits to Purdue or ND, especially Purdue.

Not really.  He'll still need a line to block for him!  ;-)

Anyone going to the IU/Ohio State game on the 31st?  Got my tickets a couple of weeks ago.  ESPN is doing game day in Bloomington.  Should be quite a night of football!

I'm probably going to be selling mine. I work an hour north of Indy and probably won't work from a timing standpoint.

I'm heading down for this game.  It's going to be a big night in Bloomington.  I have heard the game is close to a sell out, so the atmosphere should be electric.

My hope is the Hoosiers play well and don't get blown out on national television.

You can bet there will be a HUGE crowd.  Ohio State fans travel well and since Columbus (Ohio) is only about  3 - 4 hours away and it is a night game, there will be a ton of scarlet and gray in the stadium.  By the way, ESPN is doing a special night edition of College Game Day.  It is scheduled to be from 6 - 8 p.m.  It will be the first time they have ever done a College Game Day in Bloomington.  Should be crazy.

Welp, the OSU game is 3 days away. I am unable to attend because of work. I tried to sell my tickets to IU fans to start, but no luck, so they went via StubHub (probably OSU fans). I try to remain an optimistic guy, but the one thing I can't get past....an offensive mind like Kevin Wilson getting to play against a defense he knows a lot about. I have faith and I'll always have hope, but this one takes my optimism down a few pegs. 

Cheers to those making the trip to Bloomington! We are hoping to take a day trip on Sunday and are gonna hope to find a campus getting over a 3-day bender following the biggest win ever (I'm young, so definitely my "ever")!

Go Hoosiers!

The past few years this game has been closer than a lot of people expected.  However, I have a feeling this year it is going to be one sided and not in the Hoosiers favor.  As you've stated, Wilson gets to not only call plays against his old team, but now is getting to use 4 and 5 star players.  Also, the Buckeyes are hurting over that bowl game that they got blasted in.  Trust me, Meyer isn't likely to forget that and won't let his team forget either.  The Hoosier offense isn't close to what it was.  I'm thinking points will be a premium this year for the Cream and Crimson.  The Buckeyes have a great defense again and have J.T. Barrett at quarterback.  That adds up to a long night for I.U.  One cool thing though:  College Game Day will be there.

So much hype for a game that will probably be a 50+ point blowout.   Enjoy your 15 minutes of "fame',  IU football.

 

That's a lot.  Wanna put your money where your mouth is and make a wager on that?
